Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

In the user page there is add openid link? Why would one need multiple OpenIDs?

In case one of your OpenID provides suddenly disappears, it saves you a lot of hassle from having to email Stack Exchange and proving your identity. Instead, you simply login with the other OpenID and everything continues to work fine.

MyOpenID account mysteriously vanished

Occasionally, your OpenID provider (external to Stack Exchange) does something crazy.
